Andrea Poli freely admits “none” of the current Milan squad would’ve started during the glory days.
Rossoneri fans are increasingly frustrated and their downturn in fortunes and criticised the club for selling top stars like Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Thiago Silva.
“I know that I have arrived in a transition period, as none of us would have started in the Grande Milan side,” Poli told La Gazzetta dello Sport.
“However, we can open up a good new era. There is a magical air at Milanello and I really want to win.
“I like to take responsibility, so I hope to wear this jersey for many years and my ambition is to play an important part at this club.”
